Good price on used 2012 Laredo?

I have located a used 2012 Laredo and thought I'd see what the consensus might be on it.

E Group package
Power Sunroof
20,712 miles

Asking price is $26,488. I am guessing that the final out the door price would be something like $27,788. The NADA "clean retail" for this vehicle comes in at $28,700 so this would appear to be a good deal. Would you agree?

As others in my position have mentioned, my concern is related to some of the problems that have been noted in the 2012 models such as the cylinder head issue and the transmission shudder.

It makes me wonder if I should forgo saving a few thousand and just buy a new Laredo instead in hopes some of these issues would be avoided in the new model.

I would say the price is a bit high, I paid 28k for my Laredo 4x4 new.

you'll need a lot more than just a few thousand to get into a new one, but $26K seems reasonable with the E-group package. Brand new it was probably a low-mid 30K car at MSRP.

It would be cool if you can get together with members of this forum and the other GC forum who are thinking of trading in their 2012-13 GCs for a 2014. You get a good deal and they get a better deal than a trade-in.

That seems high to me!! So no, not a good deal. I'm not sure and too lazy to look up the E group, but in my area I have seen new 13s for less. New base models that is.

Price is high

Go to Carmax and enter same info as if you were selling them this vehicle. Call a local Jeep dealer and speak w/ the used car manager and say you are looking at a 2015 and have this 2012 to trade in what will he/she give you.

4x2's dont command the same price as 4x4. Chrysler's powertrain warranty will cover you on the cylinder head and so does emission warranty.

I would go $500 over the Carmax trade in price. Not a big demand for 4x2 Wk2s.
